Question: I wanted to know what other companies do for time off. Our company offers 2 weeks' vacation (3 weeks' after 10 years) plus 5 sick days each year, which can accumulate up to 30 days (sick leave only). I have used all my vacation due to an emergency with my father-in-law and took a week's vacation. I am short one day to attend my niece's wedding and was going to take the day off without pay. Evidently, we are not allowed to due this. If I do decide to take this off, then it will affect my review. Can you take time off without pay if you want?
